      This hand was at the start of the session so I didn't have any meaningful stats.

      PF:

      I squeeze because I don't expect KQ to play too well 4 way and I have blockers as well.

      Flop:

      I check for some deception and also I don't think I'm getting 2 streets of value from underpairs.

      River:

      On the river I think my bet screams of the type of hand I have, however I can't see that many better hands in his value range. Although saying this I think it's a fold as I don't see him turning QQ into a bluff and it could be a slow played AA or maybe even a set as I don't have any reads on the villain.

      What are your thoughts on the entire hand?

      Hey,

      BU is involved in the hand, I think you shoudl cbet flop and shove turn, you get way too much value against him to not do that imo. If MP gets involved you just proceed with caution.

      As played, you treat your hand like a bluffcatcher and the board got worse to get value. I don't like betting river, I don't expect any midapir to call. I prefer check/calling since it's an OK spot to bluff from villain's perspective or, if you think he won't bluff, just check/fold. The runout is just bad to get value whether you bet or bluffcatch but bluffcatching will be superior against most average players.

      What are your thoughts on the sqz?

      Would you sqz with this hand or would you take a flop?

      Sqz FTW imo. Offsuit hands don't play that well multiway like you said, you also block their 4betting hands so there's a lot of money to be won now or postflop since when you get called, KQ does pretty well when you flop a pair in a 3bet pot.
